I want everything to happen in my time (read: right now!). I do not like waiting for God's time, except in those rare cases that His time and my time match. I know that everytime I'm patient and wait it out, His time always works better than my time.

When I was 17, I wanted to go to Bible college. I applied, I was accepted, and for whatever reason, I didn't get to go. Twice when I was in my 20's I applied, I was accepted, and for whatever reason, I didn't get to go. I was not happy about it any of those times.

I started my first class at The Master's College this week. I am finally attending (in a manner of speaking) Bible college. I have waited 16 years, and I am admitting....I am more ready now than I was then. As always, His time was better than my time.

On Being Asked the Question..

"But what about all the people who believe something else? How do you know they're not right?"

There are variations on that question but they all mean the same thing and they're usually asked in a "Hah! Answer that!" tone. You know that one: annoying and agravating and arrogant. There is probably a smug look on his face. The person is sure that he has just asked the unanswerable question.


That doesn't seem quite Christ-like, though, so I manage to refrain (even though I really hate that tone). The thing is, the questioner doesn't want an answer; he just wants to be right and has already decided that he has won. Any answer will be rejected with the words "Yeah, but what if you're wrong?" or "But how do you know?" or some such question.

The asking of the question usually signals the end of any real conversation.

Forwarded emails

I have 3 issues with forwarded emails:

1. The emails that say "this really works!!!" and tells me to forward it to however many people and my wish will come true or whatever. My point is, how does the person sending it already know that it works? Hm? Or am I on your second list of people to send it to?

2. My brother forwards it to everyone on his list including me. My other brother gets the email as well and forwards it to everyone on his list including can go on for a while.

3. I will not be guilted into sending anything forward or back. If you don't know if we're friends, why am I in your contact list anyway? And trust me, Jesus already knows that I love Him, and I don't have to forward anything to anyone to prove it.
